    Just watched the whole of the Bass series wreckingball added to the thread... Brilliant!
    These Howard Goodall videos on music should definitely be in the music department of every school in the western hemisphere.
    It might teach some of these stodgy bastards teaching in many schools a few lessons let alone the kids. And boy have I met a few music teachers in my time that could benefit from them.

    Same, here, just finished watching part 5; glad I forced myself to sit thru the bit on sequencing and modern dance music to see the conclusion, which was totally brilliant. :dude:

    20th Century Greats next. Great thread. :D

    Halfway through the "20th century greats" These are very cool. :thumb:

    Shows that McCartney knew what he was talking about, to say the least.

    And the rest of the lot as well...

    Cheers

    It's just so interesting to see how music developed over the years and how we still borrow heavily on things that were happening hundreds of years ago.

    Just finished melody last night, fantastic! Now for rhythm. Thanks Phil, just what i needed at present for my quest on theory ;)

    Edit,

    after watching the rhythm section this track popped into mind by tool, in fact i can now see syncopation has alot to do with why i admire the style these guys have.

    [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UUXBCdt5IPg[/ame]


    Their melody and progression is actually quite simple on its own, but with the way they "syncopate", or push the bass/melody and rhythm ahead at chosen times really explodes and withdraws the feeling absorbed by the listener. I think im ranting:D

    Then i got to thinking about this one by mars volta, i still dont know whats happening there?

    Bloody weird vid....:laugh2:
    The timimg was interesting, It sounded like they were playing 4/4 2/4 early on and when the heavy section came in went into 10/8.
    A bugger to count and play. You really have to feel it. :laugh2:

    this thread cuts me in half but thank you very much Phil,
    Im one of those guys who can only do pentatonics and chords and Im always wondering how to expand myself and how to fit in a band, because thats the problem for me, until I play at home or with someone who shares my same likes Im fine but when Im just only a little bit out of there... ouch! how many times I approached bands and I have to throw in stupid excuses to run back home because I couldnt fit in... I wish that besides all the tecnique books there will be a "how to play in a band" one which can help me
    Im still striving to improve and made some little steps ahead but Im very far from where I want to be so this thread hits me in the heart but also helps me,
    "sad but true", thanks a lot Phil

    PS I completely second your post about teachers, nowadays no one frankly tells the truth and on the other side people are not willing to listen to negative feedback... too bad, no room for real improving, passing through hard times gave us the great players of the 60s and 70s

    PPS merry aXeMAS to everyone ;-))))))))

    Great find Phil - thanks for sharing :)
    Very informative and well presented.
    Unfortunately Sony Music found it necessary to mark their territory by blocking a couple of them in my country, but luckily I can watch most of them.


    Thank you!

    Hi Lestergain. Sorry for delay in replying but haven't been in here much lately.
    The beauty of the guitar,or any instrument for that matter is that like many scientific equations, in the final analyisis they are very simple. E=mc² for example.. A tiny beautifully simple equation, yet one that took ages to arrive at.
    You must find the right teacher and mix with friends who share your interests.
    Once you are set on the right road, you will find that as in those equations, things will slot together very easily. The answer in itself is very simple. It's just that most people either don't want to, or can't view it in that way.
    I wish you all the luck for the future..

    Phil.

    Yeah it's a pain when they do that Johnny , but I hope you can get to watch them all. It is a fascinating series and about music full stop, unlike many programmes that are either classical or rock biased. In these Howard Goodall shows you that everything is linked.

    These videos are f***ing awesome :applause::applause:
